In brief: If have hep C, high.
Hepatitis c is transmitted by physical contact from infected person to non infected.
Some small blood exchanged in the process, or via the semen. Dirty/shared needles in IV drug users, untested blood transfusion. It's serious, it could go on to chronic hep, cirrhosis, or liver ca. Incidence is on the rise & many don't know have it. Recent lecture by hep c expert said queens, ny-perhaps a capital.
